A friend who just came over from the UK brought me Amazon's Alexa (Google it - Echo Dot) as a Christmas present, I have to say, for playing UK radio, it's fantastic and responds in a nano second. I use a Greek IP and have no problems accessing UK radio including the BBC. In addition to the radio, Alexa has numerous other skills as they are called which you can Google to find out, I find it great for reminders etc, shopping lists and numerous other skills. Everyone who has an Amazon account also has access to Amazon My Music, you can upload 250 of your favourite tracks for free which would be an average of around 16 hours worth of playtime, organise into playlists such as 60's, 70's, easy listening, whatever you want to call a playlist and then just say to Alexa "Alexa, play playlist easy listening" and away you go, just say "shuffle" and it will shuffle the music. You can link it to home automation, eg, switch lights on & off amongst other things but need "smart" bulbs for this. For £50, it's quite an amazing bit of kit and I can recommend it to anyone as Amazon are 2 years ahead of the same thing from Google or Apple. I've only been messing about with it on and off for the last 2 weeks and am still discovering an ever expanding set of skills it will perform. Unfortunately, it won't wash the dishes.....yet LOL. A.I. The future I guess.
